Partnering with Waypoint offers a business the opportunity to bring its employees together in a teambuilding manner to support adventure programming for people with disabilities. It is a great chance for your team to take a step out of the work environment, share leadership responsibilities and touch the lives of program participants – even if only for a few hours. We offer many opportunities for team volunteering on weekdays, weeknights, and/or weekends, and a variety of programs including kayaking, rock climbing, hiking and snowshoeing.
Make An Impact
Waypoint relies heavily on the support of individuals and corporations. For these opportunities to be available to as many people as possible, Waypoint charges its participants only 25% of the actual cost of the programs – and even offers needs-based scholarships to offset these costs when necessary. The balance is raised through investments from individuals and organizations.
There are opportunities for firms to sponsor single day, week-long, semester or year-round programs. These include the chance to actively volunteer in any event the company sponsors. In addition, as a partner of Waypoint, you will receive public recognition through our website, signage at events and brochures which you may share with your clients, prospects and employees.
Cultivate an Inclusive Mindset
Today, more and more firms are working tackle issues of diversity head on. By volunteering with Waypoint Adventure your team will have the opportunity to engage with a very diverse community of people in meaningful and fun ways. Along with your volunteer service or as a stand alone event, Waypoint can offer your team a customized version of our Inclusion and Access training which is designed to prepare your team to include people with cognitive, physical and sensory disabilities at work and in their own community.
Hear from past corporate volunteers:
“You spend a day in a pool teaching a bunch of kids how to paddle a kayak and the next day you’re back in the office swapping stories and laughing about how much fun you had. You definitely get to know your co-workers better after an experience like that! It’s perfect for corporate team building.” ~ Carl Robinson – Senior Private Client Advisor, Wilmington Trust
We had such a wonderful time volunteering with Waypoint last week! I can honestly say it was our favorite volunteer event of the year thus far.” ~ Elissa Bosley – Director-Marketing, Commonwealth Financial Group
Waypoint Adventure makes it easy for our employees to give back. They are highly-organized – giving advanced notice for what it takes to have a successful outing, quickly orienting volunteers, leveraging our individual skills to make the project successful and integrating us with the Waypoint program participants quickly. Just as important, the facilitators ensured that everyone – children, teachers, and volunteers – had a lot of unnecessary fun! Our organization will definitively continue to work (and play) with Waypoint for the foreseeable future.” Kurt Anderson – Director of Human Resources, Definitive Healthcare
